New Ad Featuring Lilly Ledbetter

The Obama Campaign is releasing a new ad today featuring Lilly Ledbetter, the Alabama woman whose fight for equal pay led her to the United States Supreme Court and inspired the 2007 fair pay legislation that bears her name. Ledbetter announced her support for the Obama-Biden ticket this week at an event with Michelle Obama, who has been holding roundtables with women all across the country for over a year.

In the new ad called “Need Education,” Ledbetter tells her story of pay discrimination. Families are hurting under George Bush’s economic policies, and women are more squeezed than ever, working for less pay than men and juggling increasing family commitments. But even in 2008, John McCain opposes laws to fix the pay gap, and he doesn’t have a plan to help women manage these new challenges. Obama will support women and families in this shaky economy and continue to fight to close the pay gap that is hurting families across America.
Watch "Need Education" below...
